Rail Technology – Measurement Technology for a Safe, Reliable Rail Systems
In rail transport applications, keeping infrastructure and rolling stock safe and ensuring availability are always top priorities. Manufacturers, maintenance companies and operators all have responsibilities in these areas. Kistler rail technology provides each of them with support: Manufacturers can use Kistler accelerometers to test train models, maintenance companies can check the braking force of vehicles and rail network operators can use our Rail Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) system to monitor trains whilst they are on the move.
This WIM system not only makes it possible to determine weight, but also enables early detection of damage to wheels and so can prevent any knock on problems from affecting the larger rail network. Kistler rail technology offers precision measurement technology for every situation, including meeting any and all regulation, standard, and legislation requirements.
